The celebrated art of ‘Reg and Pete’ returns to Manly Art Gallery & Museum.

Included are recent and early works featuring Reg Mombassa’s iconic ‘allegorical landscapes’ and Peter O’Doherty’s studies of deceptively mundane domestic and suburban Australian scenes.

New Zealand born Chris O’Doherty (AKA Reg Mombassa) and Peter O’Doherty are brothers, visual artists, and collaborating musicians featuring prominently in Australia’s cultural landscape. As musicians, the pair came to fame as members of the band Mental as Anything. Reg Mombassa is also widely recognised for his graphic work for the street clothing brand Mambo. Both Reg and Pete have been making art since their childhood, and both strike a unique and remarkably even balance between their musical and visual art professional output.

The exhibition includes recent graphic works, a new interpretive video piece (a collaboration between MAG&M curator and producers ‘Afterglow’) and is accompanied by unique public programming.
